Now, to backtrack my point a bit. I am presuming good faith on the part of the player. The player isn't deliberately picking stuff that doesn't fit with the campaign. They are makign the earnest attempt to make a character that is in keeping with what they understand to be the campaign.
So, yeah, the bloodthirsty character in a 4 color heroic game is simply a mismatch in understanding. Fair enough.
But, that's not what's been asked in this thread. People are making claims that this:
